Similarly, I encountered the same problem, but in a bit different way. My boss was a Pentecostal man, very kind and reasonable. And one time he seemed to think that I would hear him in regard to Bible topic, he asked me if I ever got on my knees and asked Christ to come into my heart. And then he immediately apologised, saying he should not speak to his employees about such things – but I asked him not to apologise because I loved talking about such things with anyone. So he repeated his question and I replied that I could not count the times I had done that, but nothing happened. He had a perplexed look on his face – he told me he had never encountered anyone before who prayed for Christ to come in who said nothing happened and that he would need to find some reason why nothing happened – ‘was I sure that I prayed asking Jesus to come into my heart’ – yes I was sure and that it was a prayer that was frequent even in tears at times, but nothing happened. He looked even more disturbed, and I had to set him on the right track so that he would not suffer any loss to his faith – I added, “But I know that it will happen when God is ready.” And it did happen in a blink of an eye and I will never forget that experience as long as I am in this corruptible body – in fact, in the very instant that it happened I knew that it happened the very first time I had ever prayed for Him to come into my heart and He was the reason that I spent so long repeating that prayer.He was removing the blinders that 2x2ism had installed over my eyes – it was He who gave me the belief that when God was ready it WOULD happen (faith in Him in spite of ‘nothing’ happening).
